My system is Win XP Home Edition SP3 and up to date. I have just bought and installed a new monitor an AOC 2436Pwa. I switched off my PC, plugged in the VGA cable at both ends and attached the power cable. Started PC and I have sound and vision, I inserted the Installation CD that came with the monitor and read through the various instructions. I went to install the driver on the disc and followed the instructions but when I am asked to choose the drive for the disc Windows tells me that there isn't anything there. Even when I browse to the disc drive I get the same result. Windows seems to be using the same plug and play driver as was used for my previous two monitors for this new one. Two questions, is it neccessary/better to install the drivers which came with the monitor instruction disc or and will it have any advantages or should I just leave it as it is?.

I have never had to use a montior driver. If it's not broke, don't fix it.
